International > WSK Euro Series



Unusually, the KZ1 races have been the most bad tempered and messy even this early at the WSK Euro Series at Genk. Yannick De Brabander (Maranello / TM) strongly led heat 1 against Max Verstappen (CRG / TM) and Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex) while Anthony Abbasse (Sodi / TM) came back to fourth position with the fastest lap. The French driver led the second heat early on before giving up due to a mechanical failure, then Verstappen won the second heat ahead of De Brabander, second for a while, but he dropped to 17th place due to a penalty of 10'' for jumping the start. Jonathan Thonon (CRG / Maxter) took second place ahead of Ardigo, Jorrit Pex (CRG / TM) and Ben Hanley (ART GP / TM).


Ardigo started first in final one, but Verstappen was quick to take control and flew to victory, gradually pulling away, while Dreezen lost his third position. Abbasse and De Brabander crashed, the Belgian soon returning to parc ferme while the French tried to reduce his disadvantage. Positions were gradually fixed with Ardigo second and Hanley third, then Thonon, Leclerc and Dreezen. Abbasse finally came back to 11th place.


This victory gives Max Verstappen a score of 215 points in the championship and has won the crown before final two on Sunday.

Although the quadruple World Champion Danilo Rossi is happy to sit on the drivers commission of the FIA, he doesn't know who backs the initiative. He has, however, taken the opportunity to express his opinions in the hope that this will lead to progress.


"No, karting is not as expensive as they say!" says Danilo with passion. "We must stop circulating higher and higher numbers that do not correspond to reality. As Team Principal, I am well placed to know how much it costs! We are not the cheapest in the paddock, but certainly not the most expensive. It is quite possible to complete an international season for €100,000. Prices of often double or triple that circulate in discussions or in the press. On the other hand, some items could cost less without taking anything away from the competition. The price of petrol, bonds, and guarantees, are all worth looking at."


Finally, Danilo Rossi shares his vision of the future: "I do not have all the answers! But I know KF is now a development category, with good reliability, not too complicated to run, and most importantly, no more expensive than other formats run at a high level. KF should find a place in the national and regional championships. Creating a new category today, could cause the death of karting as we know it. For me, it should work on the present basis."

The pole man yesterday, Riccardo Negro (DR / TM) achieved success beyond what he had hoped for on Saturday at Genk. Not only won has he won both heats in KZ2, but also final 1 while his championship rival, Marco Zanchetta (Maranello / TM) was a victim of a broken gear lever in the final. The battle, however, was beginning to develop, as Zanchetta overcame the main part of the delay and was close to Negro before the halfway point. Joel Johansson (Energy / TM) retired early after a breakdown. Andreas Fasberg (Tony Kart / Vortex) took advantage of the situation to take second place ahead of Alexander Schmitz (Tony Kart / Vortex). Fourth went to Kenny Charles (Merlin / TM) from Ricardo Romkema (Birel / TM) and Emil Antonsen (DR / TM), the fastest driver in this final. According to our calculations, Negro took the lead in the championship with 204 points against 202 for Zanchetta. The suspense continues until Sunday ...

Nenhum controlo de ruído oficial este fim-de-semana em Genk, mas um pedido urgente do anfitrião da WSK Euro Series para os pilotos KZ1 & KZ2 garantem o respeito das normas de ruído. A equipa de Kart Genk quer evitar os problemas com os vizinhos que não os pouparam desde o início da construção do novo complexo. Uma ameaça silenciosa ainda paira sobre os decibéis made in KZ...


Um sonómetro foi colocado pelos Oficiais Belgas, alguns metros após a linha de partida, para registar os valores médios e assegurar um relativo silêncio às corridas. Os concorrentes jogam o jogo, nenhum excesso registado até aqui. Ao mesmo tempo isso permite-lhes um ajuste com vista à próxima prova do Campeonato da Europa no próximo mês.

Qualifications à Ledenon



Deux pilotes ont dominés et établies la référence : Alexandre Sébastia et Emmanuel Vinuales. Ce sont en effet les deux seuls a descendre sous la barre des 1 minute 20 secondes et lors de chaque séance. C'est d'abord Sébastia en 1ère séance de qualification qui établit la marque qui deviendra la pôle en 1'19''483'''. Vinuales est second et le jeune Suisse Etienne Aebischer un des plus assidu étonne en prenant la 3ème place provisoire mais assez loin (1'21''519'''). En second séance, Vinuales est cette fois le pus rapide, il améliore son chrono précédent mais ne détrone pas Sébastia qui ne passe pas de pneus neufs. Cyril Vayssié améliore largement et en 1'20''206 se place en deuxième ligne avec Aebischer qui ne réitère pas ses chronos du matin.
